The Color of Fall

First, I prefer to spell it "colour". Second, while October Blue is my favorite colour* - ever - the fall holds another favorite. That first blush of yellow-peach-orange some trees turn.

It's gone now. It happens in early to mid October for just 3 to 5 days before it goes too orange for my taste. 

Mostly the trees now look "burnt" and faded with occasional pops of the conifer evergreen. Still pretty - for a while - against the grey November sky but not the same. 



Take-away - Enjoy while you can, beauty and joy are fleeting things - the better to teach us what to truly treasure.

*FYI - yes I'm a little obsessed with colours and Colors of The Wind is my favorite song.
